[ light laughter ] julie, i will try very hard. >> reporter: chuck todd, nbc news, the white house. >>> this is john yang in chicago where residents deal with gun violence virtually every day. last year, there were more than 510 murders, more than the number of u.s. troops killed in afghanistan. 86% of the homicides involved a gun. in one chicago interview, nothing president obama did would change that. >> i believe chicago already has very strict gun laws and we have, like, one of the highest crime rates in the country. so how is this going to solve anything? >> reporter: the national gun debate was reignited last month by adam lanza's shooting rampage in newtown, connecticut where the mother of 6-year-old victim noah pozner wants a balanced approach on guns. >> people who want to own firearms responsibly have nothing to fear. they should welcome it. because that way guns won't be given a bad name. they'll -- they may have a
the case that gun laws need to be changed. she spoke about her daughter killed in a colorado movie theater. >> six weeks before she died she was in the mall shooting in toronto. i told her at that time that she would never again see such a horrendous occurrence. six weeks later, she lay dead. you must take action. if you think this cannot happen to you and you will never be touched by gun violence, you are fooling yourself. >> the president is hoping americans will take that fear to heart and call their elected leaders. he wants congress to agree to ban the future production of some assault weapons and ammunition clips holding more than 10 bullets. >> weapons designed for the theater of war have no place in movie theaters. >> he wants to make sure everybody who wants to buy a gun, even from gun shows, has to pass a more comprehensive background check, and a band to armor piercing bullets. by executive order, he told federal law enforcement to begin studying the causes of gun violence. but even the man who came up with dozens of proposals is not promising a end to mass shootings. >> no one
working in films and law enforcement. he was killed. so was a person on the ground. the crane still dangling as authorities look for ways to safely dismantle it. >>> president obama says he won't back down from a flight on his ambitious new gun control agenda. our exclusive survey usa rugbia poll found strong bay area support for his -- usa survey poll found strong bay area support. it's congress that needs convincing. >> reporter: with a stroke of a pen, president obama signed 23 executive orders combating gun violence. one directs the center for disease control to study gun violence. another helps young people get mental health treatment. >> if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try. >> reporter: the president called for a ban on assault weapons and ammunition magazines with more than 10 rounds. he also wants background checks for everyone buying a gun. >> and i'm calling on congress to pass some very specific proposals right away. >> reporter: children who wrote the president after the connecticut shooting were in the audience for the announc
changes to gun laws outlining four major legislative proposals asking for a ban on military-style assault rifles, high-capacity magazines, extending background checks and toughening gun trafficking laws. mr. obama also mentioned executive actions mostly to toughen existing laws. at the emotionally charged event the president was surrounded by children who wrote him letters of gun violence. family members of the newtown victims were in the audience, including the parents of 7-year-old grace mcdonnell. >> chris, her father, gave me one of her paintings, and i hung it in my private study just off the oval office. and every time i look at that painting, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now for grace. >> the nra is getting ready for battle, raising money and e-mailing supporters to upgrade their membership for, quote, the fight of the century. >> we're not saying that your rights are at risk. the president of the united states is saying that. >> so where do things go from here? nbc's tracie potts is in washington for us. tracie, how is the
on high-capacity ammunition clips and conceded that getting new gun laws passed is going to be tough. >> if responsible gun owners, if americans of every background stand up and say, enough. we've suffered too much pain and care too much about our children to allow this to continue then change will -- change will come. that's what it's going to take. >> the president also signed 23 executive actions, all meant to improve existing gun laws. one of them makes more data available for background checks. one offers security for schools that want them. it is important to note that with those executive actions, policy directives are not needed for congressional approval, as well. so this is coming directly from the white house, directly from president obama's chair. he's cracking down. he wants to reinstate a ban on assault-style weapons. ban high-capacity magazines, which a small majority of americans approve of and a large majority want to see stricter laws when it comes to background checks and getting authorized. >> it's going to be a tough sell, no doubt about it. >>> the president's n
go. >> what about external? i mean, i could cite all sorts of different laws in which criminal behavior could have actually been tracked, if this woman had ever asked for a penny from him for treatment. if she had ever asked or encouraged him to raise money. those are crimes. and that's something the police can get involved, and police can triangulate cell phone signals and go after i.p. addresses and find you in a nanosecond, oh where is all of that? >> it's coming. if not, outside private investigations as well. manti te'o just graduated. slated for a top ten draft pick. a $10 million to $20 million investment worth over $1 billion. they do due diligence on players who aren't involved in the most bizarre sports story of the last 25 years. you better believe they're going to dig up every last aspect of this young man's personal life to find out what he did and why he did it, and the story is only going to get more strange as we go down the rabbit hole, i believe. >> you know, i asked the famed sports, the legendary sports agent leigh steinberg in the last hour if this young ma
. our cover story explains what's next. after a month of meetings with parents of victims, law enforecement and members of the national rifle association, president obama signed 23 executive actions that can be implimented without congressional approval. they include money for schools to hire a thousand security officers and restoring aid to research gun violence at the centers for disease control. "congress, too, must act, and congress must act soon." the president listed a half- billion-dollar effort that will need congressional approval to enforce universal background checks for anyone buying a weapon, reinstatement of the assault-weapons ban that expired, a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips defined as more than ten rounds, and more aggressive prosecution of gun laws. reaction was swift. "the vast majority of americans support common-sense gun regulation, and clearly the white house was listening." the national rifle association, which is reportedly planning to launch a daily tv talk show, released an ad critical of the president. the nra also issued this statement: in t
an irresponsible law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale. >> reporter: that's the balance the president is trying to strike with a series of new proposals to curb gun violence, focusing on gun sales, education, and mental health. he wants congress to ban military-style assault weapons, like the one used in the sandy hook shooting masacre and magazines with more than 10 bullets. he also wants to require criminal and mental health checks for all gun buyers, including people who buy at gun shows or through private sales. many pro gun rights lawmakers are expressing opposition,s special to a ban on assault weapons. >> the president's just making a political move and it's a shame that he's using this situation. >> reporter: while many of the new proposals require acts of congress, some can be enacted with an executive order, including new efforts to stop school bullying and increased mental health services. >> we should do as much as we can as quickly as we can and we cannot let the enemy be the good. >> reporter: the president
. he urged gun owners to pressure the nra and their lawmakers to support new gun laws. jane weaver represents the second amendment sisters. she says new laws are a knee-jerk reaction. >> let's pass a regulation and then everybody feels better. >> reporter: the nra says it will fight most of the president's proposal, but there is common ground when it comes to expanding background checks. >> background checks at the gun shows. that, as i say, was something we discussed with the atf years ago and we said we didn't have a problem with that. >> reporter: several republican lawmakers released statements saying they will oppose any new gun laws. danielle nottingham, cbs news, the white house. >>> following days of soaking rain this morning the southeast is now in store for snow. winter storm warnings and watches are posted from the gulf coast to the mid-atlantic. heavy snow is forecasted from north georgia to washington, d.c., which could get up to 6 inches. up to 2 inches is forecasted for alabama and mississippi. there's been widespread flooding in west virginia a
. >>> a new survey shows most americans want tougher laws. according to a new nbc wall street journal poll, 56% favor more restrictions on guns. 7% say current laws are too strict. and 35% prefer to keep laws the way they are now. the poll shows that 41% of all households have a gun and the numbers also show a sharp political divide. 55% of republicans say they have guns compared to 27% of democrats. >>> you probably won't be standing on grass if you're on the national mall for monday's inauguration. crews are putting down a plastic cover to protect the lawn from inauguration-goers. there is equipment stacked up there. crews will start working in just about 25 minutes at 6:30. you see the stacks to the side. the park service spent $16 million replacing the grass on the mall. the plastic sheets will prevent people from trampling the turf there like the crowd did during the president's first inauguration. we will help you get inauguration day started the right way. begins at 4:00 a.m. on monday. eun and i will be live from capitol hill to preview the day's events for you. you can check out our i
is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation. only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the ineactivitiability of more tragedy. a lot of these proposals that the president put out were greeted with lukewarm response. john boehner's spokesman put out a statement saying the house will look at those recommendations and if the senate pass as bill they will look at that too but no commitment move to any legislation in the house of representatives. so, larry, it looks like a lot of these proposals will not happen but there were more than 20 elements of what he proposed today, the president that were, in fact, executive actions that he could sign today and enforce through the executive branch of the government and that he did. so the rest of the proposals will be legislative and we'll have to see how they fare. >> as always, thanks eamon javers. the national rifle association is pushing back with a tough new ad campaign labelling the president an elitist hypocrite for allowing his own kids to have their protection. >> are the president's kids
